The Twelve Days of Finals

He did it! Brad survived his first semester of law school!
Finals were rough, but he got through them.
He won’t know his grades until the end of January. They say that’s to make sure they all come back!
But I am sure that he will get amazing grades. He always does.

To help Brad get through finals, I decided to give him
The Twelve Days Of Finals

I figured out which day I would need to start so that I would end on the day of his last final.
All of the things were pretty silly, but I had fun with it.

Sometimes, you just have to do silly things to help each other through difficult things.

For sake of our sanity, I will just post them all from 12 down.

On the TWELFTH day of FINALS
my true love gave to me:

12 Reasons why She Loves Me
11 Songs About Us
10 Dollar Ornament
9 Festive Oreos
8 Kisses
7 Encouraging Text Messages
6 St. Lucia’s Buns
5 Golden Rings
4 Coupons
3 Lucky Pennies
2 Warm Gloves
And a snack for study placed under the tree.

And in case you cared to see, here are the pictures:

Brad really likes cheese crackers.

Poor dear, his hands were freezing on the way to school. 

This was the day before Brad's first exam, so I wanted him to have some luck to take along.
My Grandpa always gave me lucky coins. When I left on my mission, 
he gave me a coin that I always kept in my scripture case. 
Grandpa always looked for good years. 
Brads 3 pennies had good years.
1989: the year we were born
1992: the year we met
2013: the year we were married

Pretty simple.

Each golden (ok, yellow) ring had a message 

Yes, there are more than six, but you know...

He's so great!

Not sure why I didn't put the oreos in this picture... oops. 
They were the Christmas ones with red cream. 

Normally, I would never spend $10 on an ornament... but we have been looking everywhere for an "Our First Christmas" Ornament, so I couldn't resist. Plus, we have a billion gift cards to Target.
The picture isn't great, but it says Mr. & Mrs. 2013.

Glad Melannie got me set up with Spotify!

Last, but not least.

Like I said, all really silly things, but I think it's good to be silly every now and again.
I'm so blessed to be married to such an amazing man who works so hard but 
always has time for the things that matter most. 
I am so proud of him for surviving his first semester of law school.

We are so excited to have a two week break now.
Arizona, here we come!!!!!!!!
